Do we really need to have ADS to print 1099 Forms?

We used to use Smart Forms and SAP Scripts for printing out 1099 forms.

As IRS comes out with new forms and SAP no longer supports Smart Forms and SAP Scripts, is there an alternative besides Adobe Document Services for printing out 1099? We do not want to implement ADS if there are other options.

We are on ECC 6.0 with all ABAP instances without any Java instance.

Thank you so much.

Thank you for your answer.

If ADS is the only option, then we should install Java instance for ADS. However, we don't know how long more SAP will support ADS in the future (or near future). Currently, are there any SAP customers that use any other technology for printing 1099 forms besides ADS? We just do not want to install ADS and then will need to move on again (like Smart Forms).

Once again, I thank you.

Dear Long Le,

I search for 1099 forms notes in SAP repository. It seems that they exist in Smartform and ADS form. If smartform technology is not supported, solution is ADS. ADS is working only on JAVA engine and this system should be installed. It can be a standalone server only for ADS.
